You can access the bulb bases and wires through the pop off caps but that's all you can do. To change the deflection you need a new headlamp assembly(or a used one) or use the stick on blanking...
Yes that's right. The rubber gets compressed and you can test by trying to rotate the pulley and checking for any play. Replacing the rubbers is the stock fix but they want stupid monies for the 4...
I think a faulty rectifier can damage the stator. I think I've replaced my rectifier twice now and the stator 3 times.
Mines the original front pulley BMW fitted soon after I purchased as the solid pulley was horrible. So my pully has done 100K plus miles. Never tried to open it. I'd look at a lower mileage used one...
The dealers are overly pesamistic with the belt life. I get 50K or more with used belts and the front pulley rubbers are original at 200K as are the rear ones with some added rubber padding.
The stator isn't as efficient at high revs. My bike has a voltage monitor LED so I can keep an eye on the voltage.
The rubber I added was about 5mm thick.
My front pulley was replaced by BMW early on but its done over 100k miles.
The modded one is the solid on. The original has holes in it I think.
Also check the rear cush drive at that sort of mileage mine had play in the rear pulley cush rubbers. I just added small squares...
30 mile round trip to get MOT done (PASSED)
All running well.
Mines not that bad. Bodywork all original. As is frame and wheels and forks.
And like Trigger broom its the same old bike (except for all the parts I've replaced)
I've been looking at a newer GT model but this S just keeps going and my usage is much less nowadays. But maybe as when S finally dies....
It was but at 25K miles BMW fitted new pistons and barrels. Reluctantly. I had to agree to pick up the cost if the strip down showed no damage. Of course the strip down showed shagged pistons and...
Just took the bike for a spin. Running as well as ever.
The clutch is improved as I took the time to dress the clutch basket.
The aluminium gets dents from the snatch of a pull away and eventually...
running with a K&N on my F800S and it doesn't seem to make any difference (good or bad)
No its the original chain and guides. The most I've ever done is modify the spring on the tensioner.
Here's the audio of the first startup after the pump gear replacements.
Battery was a little low and remember the bike had Been run with no oil pressure.
Also the bike has a blueflame exhaust so...
No they are small Cork type squares. About 8mm x 5mm x very thin. And soft.
OK fitted both gears.
The gear on the back of the clutch basket had lost a few teeth evenly spaced in 4 spots round the gear.
I've used a variety of oils over the years but always good guality.
Not sure not removed yet. But filter is after pump so I can't see anything significant having passed the pump.
No marks on. Pump rotors. Also if the pump had jammed only one section of pump gear...
will have to check. I happened to have it in my toolbox.
I've ordered a pair of used gears plus some gasket. Hope to assemble early next week and test.
Looks like about ú60 all in to sort.
Well finally got some time to look at bike.
First job drain oil through a cloth to look for any shrapnel.
Good news none found.
Clutch cover removed.
Bottom of that enclosure littered with...
